Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1
  • Probably the Jazz’s strongest selling point
  • Hugely versatile Magic Seats arrangement
  • Loads of space for passengers in the rear

Despite being a larger car the Jazz Crosstar loses out a little in the practicality stakes compared with the hatchback, featuring a 298-litre boot that stretches to 1,199 litres with the seats down.

In reality that’s only a couple of litres down and we doubt you’ll notice the difference – you still get the clever folding Magic Seats and acres of rear legroom. Plus, the Crosstar comes with standard roof rails, unlocking loads of carrying options on the roof.

Externally the Crosstar is larger in every dimension but not by a huge lot, so you’ll still find it easy to park and thread through narrow city streets.

Interior storage features a big box under the armrest, three smaller storage compartments in the centre tunnel, and two big cupholders built into the dashboard. The split level glovebox is carried over from the hatch too, which makes more effective use of the space on offer.


  • Stronger body thanks to high strength steel
  • Clever new front centre airbag
  • Five-star Euro NCAP safety rating

The Honda Jazz Crosstar packs the same suite of safety equipment as the Jazz Hatchback that it’s so closely related to. So, it’s no surprise that Euro NCAP treats them as the same car and awards them the same five-star safety rating

The Honda Sensing Umbrella has been enhanced this time around by a new wide angle camera (the previous system used a narrow view camera and a radar) which makes things like the autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping features more effective, particularly at night time.

The full suite includes:

  • Collision mitigation braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Road departure mitigation
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Intelligent speed limiter
  • Auto high-beam
  • Blind spot and cross traffic monitor (standard on EX grade)

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe.

These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.
